$60,000
Round 2 Funding (through 12/31/19)
Round 3 Funding (through 12/31/20)
Lead: Jacob Kevari, jkevari@cmccd.edu, Copper Mountain College
Number of colleges participating: TBD

Sector: Global Trade / Logistics

  • Program TOPS Codes: Truck and Bus Driving (094750)

Project Description: The heavy and tractor-trailer trailer truck driver occupation continues to grow, with an anticipated 3,278 new job openings between 2015 and 2020 (excluding replacement jobs for those leaving the workforce). Currently, the statewide marketplace for occupational training in this area appears to belong primarily to for-profit and/or private driving schools. Further, it appears that very few, if any, community colleges within the California Community College system offer commercial driving, bus driving, or tractor-trailer operator certificate programs. This provides an exceptional opportunity for the region to meet local and statewide demand through the offering of an industry recognized credential at an affordable cost to students.
